"Grace, grace, marvelous grace; grace that will pardon and cleanse within; grace, grace, God's grace, grace that is greater than all my sin." This is the chorus to a beautiful hymn written by Daniel Towner in 1910. It captures the essence of these moments with God. God replaces the Ten Commandments that were broken, and He nourishes Moses for forty days and forty nights, as He does so. This, my friends, is grace. Moses also asked God to forgive His people and do a marvelous work through them. God agreed and promised to keep the covenants He made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. This Israelites did not deserve it, but God promised to bring it about as they walked in obedience to Him. Once again, that is grace. Even when Moses came down from the mountain glowing because he was in God's presence, it brought great respect upon him, and the people began to listen to him. We must sing, "grace, grace, marvelous grace..." every time we see God work in our lives, our families, and our church. We must continually bring praise to His name for His marvelous and completely undeserved gifts. Do you see everything in your life as a gift? Do you choose to grumble when work is long and hard, or do you praise God for the blessing of work and a steady income. We must wake up and recognize God's grace in our lives. It is more marvelous than we can comprehend.
Help me, Lord, to see every part of my life as a gift from You. Help me to see Your gracious blessings in my life and continually bring praise to Your name.
